What difference does a year make?
there were rust colored leaves, chilled and smoky winds and knit sweaters.
there are sunny evenings, shorts and sundresses, palm trees and pools.
The sadness that choked me with tears for a good part of the summer and early autumn
eased at some point-
my eyes slowly drying, clearing with illumination at God's unfolding invitation.
You can't read "Radical" by David Platt
and "Just Courage" by Gary Haugen
and "Chosing to SEE" by Mary Beth Chapman and others
and stay calmly unmoved.
They are dangerous books.
Unknown Changes Ahead.
This Move, this Year has been unexpected for
little, near-sighted me.
This Move has shaken my vision for the Road Ahead and caused reflection.
What we have both seen as we have gained perspective is a life of
we just didn't see before.
It's life-altering, paradigm-shifting, game-changing.
This Writer is climbing into the passenger seat of a vehicle headed into a
brilliant, blinding unknown.
Hanging onto the dashboard,
unsure what exactly we are racing toward
"I'm in - Let's GO."
2010 has been the Year of Surprising Bends in the Road.
May 2011 be the Year of the Pedal to the Metal -The Year of Gunning It.
Hang on, y'all.
